Eleventh Doctor Chronicles review

The Eleventh Doctor Chronicles gives Jacob Dudman the chance to perform as the Eleventh Doctor in four hour-long audio dramas. They are in the Companion Chronicles format, meaning (generally) narrative and a second actor to flesh out the story. Under the watchful ear of director Helen Goldwyn, Jacob does (another) great job in recreating a modern incarnation of the…

Black Archive: The God Complex

Another occasional look at a Black Archive release, and this time it’s Paul Driscoll’s take on The God Complex. Paul has plenty to say in this rather thorough analysis, covering 184 pages, and a quick peek at his credentials lets us know this might be an academic tome (Paul is a theology postgraduate from Oxford). If I have…

Karen Gillan talks Big Finish

In a recent interview quoted on the Radio Times, Karen Gillan talks about Doctor Who and goes on to mention Big Finish. Does this mean we can expect some Amy Pond stories soon? Arthur Darvill has already recorded for Big Finish (Frankenstein) so who knows what might be possible?

I chat Vampires of Venice on Kasterborous

Over on Kasterborous I contributed to the article: NUWHO 10TH ANNIVERSARY: WHAT IS SERIES 5’S MOST UNDERRATED STORY? Unlike the previous article in this run (Planet of the Dead on Kasterborous) we had a very diverse set of opinions. My choice was Vampires of Venice. Let me know what you think, and what your choice would be (there’s…

The Time of the Doctor reviewed

I’ve had a few days to digest the Time of the Doctor and have a more considered review than I might have written on the day. Without further ado, how was the Eleventh Doctor‘s final adventure, did he enjoy the town of Christmas? How did the regeneration limit get beaten? Was this a cracker or a turkey? Read…

Nothing o’Clock by Neil Gaiman reviewed

Neil Gaiman had the honour of penning the final Puffin Doctor Who eshort story which was, of course, for the Eleventh Doctor and entitled Nothing o’Clock. A good choice of an author with serious Who credentials and more than capable of writing a decent story. How did he do with Nothing o’Clock? Find out…

Five Loose Ends for the Eleventh Doctor

Somewhere between Day of the Doctor and the regeneration in this year’s Christmas Special (Twelfth Night of the Doctor anyone?) there are a few loose ends that it would be nice to have cleared up. Now I realise that we need to leave some things for viewers to work out for themselves but in my humble…

Summer Falls reviewed

April 4th 2013 saw the release of Summer Falls apparently written by Amelia Williams and as featured, briefly, in The Bells of St John’s. Available only on Kindle (as far as I can tell) this is a long short-story of almost novella length. Although it could be regarded as an exercise in frivolity this is still…

Manhattan takes Amy?

With the end of this mini-season of Doctor Who approaching I thought I would add to the wave of internet speculation as to how the Ponds leave the Doctor. We are promised something tragic and we have the Weeping Angels along with River Song to add to our ingredients for this story. Just to make…
